Welcome to NBC's semi-reality show, "Who Wants To Be The Next Seinfeld?". So far, we could possibly wind up with a new sitcom called "Holmes", "Gulman", "Madigan", "Pescatelli", "London", "Heffron", "Bodden", or simply "ANT".
The unusual recap starts the show off, and you can read about that in the Ep 6 summary.
Tammy returns to the castle, stopping to tell us that she beat Todd, who is "really, really funny." Geez, NBC must have made her say that. She receives a royal hug from Queen ANT and some light applause from others. Gary is dissapointed that Todd is gone and he looks a little pouty about it. Gary confesses that he didn't get involved in an alliance and that it may hurt him.
ANT tells the camera that the plan has been Bonnie, Todd, and Gary on the chopping block. "Bye Gary".
ANT offers his $1200 photo shoot to Jay Lo, and Jay Lo accepts. ANT admits to the camera that this is an attempt to manipulate Jay, so that Jay will vote for whoever ANT tells him. ANT informs Jay that he already has enough head shots. Jay Lo thinks that ANT is such a generous person and a great guy.
At the photo shoot, Jay doesn't look like he's had any changes in his hair, although the NBC summary tells us he has had hair and makeup done. I think he wants to look the same as always, otherwise, the caveman routine doesn't work so well. He actually had to ask, "How do you smile?", which I thought was kind of funny. It's also amusing to see him do modeling style shots in his white overalls.
It's John's turn to take a card from the fortune teller, which reads, "Show another comic how much you love them."
The challenge is going to take place at the Friar's Club, and the comics will roast one of their own for a chance to become an official member of the Friar's Club, which is kind of like a "YMCA for old Jewish comics" according to Jay Mo, who had to explain what the Friar's Club was to Corey. I think Corey was hoping for some fried chicken, but instead it was explained that three legendary Friars will decide who is the funniest. Someone will win immunity, but one piece of information is sealed in an envelope. Anyway, the winner will get free membership for a year to the Friar's Club.
The comics drop cigars with a name written on them into each other's cigar boxes. The tally goes like this:
Alonzo: No cigars Gary: 1 cigar Jay Lo: 6 cigars
And *ding, ding, ding* we have a winner, folks! The roasted comic will be Jay Lo, and it was ANT who orchestrated that one. (or was it??) Ant explains that he and his alliance realize they had a better chance of poking fun of Jay, then the other comics, because there was so much material there, and it gives them all more of a chance to win immunity. Hmmm, let's see how that works out for you, ANT.
John writes all new material. Gary struggles to write so he can win immunity, and is distracted by the Evil ANT's laughter: "That laugh is like a mad scientist." ANT tries out some cringe-worthy material while in the kitchen with some others, and John pretends to like ANT's jokes, all the while rolling his eyes. In a confessional, John tells us he's going to lie when people ask him if their joke is funny.
The Friar's Club:
The three Celebrity Friar Judges (take notice they are not called Talent Scouts this time), are introduced, but without this show or checking the IMDB, I would have thought these 3 peeps were dead. Okay, I'm still wondering about Phyllis Diller. Anyway, one of them is her, of course. Then there is Norm Crosby, whose act revolved around murdering the king's english, and Rich Little, a Johnny Carson favorite, who loved to do impressions, especially of Johnny. Jay Mo said "Rich is waiting for Johnny Carson to die, so he can do it the exact same way."
Gary gets up to do his routine, but gets bleeped quite a bit more than anyone else. Gary thinks it is mandatory to swear a lot, so he does, and starts by roasting the judges, asking "Who the *bleep* is Norm Crosby?", calling Phyllis Diller "the antidote to Viagra", and referring to Rich Little as "the man of a 1,000 voices - all dead". Then he turns on his housemates, calling ANT "irritating, sneaky, and bald", telling Tammy that "1978 called, and they want their eyeshadow back", claiming to have had Thanksgiving dinner at Corey's house, where there is a kids' table and an illegitimate kids' table, and he thanks Jay Lo for putting on a tux and taking the bone out of his hair.
Up next is John, who happens to be Jay Lo's room mate. John has done his homework and interviewed Jay prior to writing his material. He tells everyone about Jay Lo's experience cleaning our horse stalls. "How confusing was it that week for those flies."
